Send a screenshot of your certificate to URCOMPED and see what they offer. With our CET certificate they offered us a free sailing on MSC Divina, and ee are sailing soon. After 20 NCL comped cruises we are excited to try something new and different. They gave us an inside cabin, changed that to a OV gty, then to a large wellness balcony cabin. Only a $ 400 deposit that turns into OBC and is refundable at the end of the cruise. Even with having to pay for airfare to florida and hotel room, it is costing us much less than a NCL comped cruise. FREE = FREE. No administration fees, port charges, no taxes.
And it doesn't negate the original certificate. We were able to get a loyalty status match to their highest level and will receive all the perks associated with that too.
You doing better than I. I sent them a copy of Caesars/NCL voucher for outside cabin. It was still an open date. URComped emailed back "want copy of the cruise line casino offer".
Later had an email from UR for NCL cruise. NCL would give an outside cabin for NEW CAS player and 13K coin in.
Looks like a waste of time for us dealing with URcomped. But like in your case, you never know what they might have just come in to give out.
Now dealing with comps. Mostly if not entirely based on ADT (Theo), not points. VP, various slots, different table games has an expected long term take by the casino. Other words your expected loss from your daily play. Your actual loss could greater or even less. The magic computer though will say comp this amount.
VP will give points. Maybe even actual cash. It is hard to get ADT. I can play and bet $30-50 per hand in VP and the ADT will be shockingly low. I have verified this with ship's hosts and land based hosts.
NCL boss told me a few years ago that the cabin offers usually run ADT 400 for inside, 800 for outside, over 1,000 for balcony. Also they would like for you to play everyday in the casino. Back to that average, ADT.
Oh the same NCL CAS guy also said they mostly look at your last cruise for play. No more than last 3 cruises in total.
